I'm Still Here... Promise!

If it seems like I've been ignoring this blog a bit too much I apologize. I swear it isn't something I'm doing on purpose. Life has been quite busy as of late, but also really productive, which isn't such a bad thing. 

On the photographic front I've been spending the last couple of months concentrating solely on getting through my massive backlog of undeveloped film. I've made it my goal to try and develop at least an average of three rolls of film per day and for the most part I've kept up with it. That sounds mighty tedious but in reality it is not. It feels good to put the camera down for a little bit and focus instead on the creative back end of the whole analogue photography game. Sometimes it is easy to get carried away with thinking about cameras, snapping pictures, exposures, and all that jazz, but the darkroom process is just as important, just as rewarding, and often times, just as much about talent and practice. 

The above image was made with a Mamiya RZ67 and a roll of Ilford HP5 film. The scene was lit entirely with natural light.
